Patrick Sunnen is Associate professor of Educational Sciences in the Institute of Education and Society. Since his doctoral research, he relied on video analysis to construct data and generate findings with regard to human sense-making in joint activities. Over the last years he moved from a video ethnographic approach to an EM/CA inspired approach to conduct multimodal interaction analysis of joint activities in teaching/learning situations and ICT-mediated contexts.
